Join us on location for ‘An Arresting Experience!’ The Vancouver Police Museum takes you behind the scenes of Vancouver’s local law enforcement, into a history of Vancouver that you’ve never explored before.
Who Are We?
The Vancouver Police Museum and Archives is an independent museum run by the Vancouver Police Historical Society, a non-profit charitable organization. The Museum’s foundations began in celebration of the Vancouver Police Department’s centennial anniversary in 1986 and have since expanded beyond the blue lens of local law enforcement to include the history of the Vancouver Coroner’s Services and the historic City Analyst Laboratory that houses the Museum.
Walk down through our museum halls and learn about some of Vancouver's most exciting crime cases and unsolved murder mysteries, or delve deep into the fascinating history of policing in Vancouver, which includes authentic photos, archives and artefacts straight from the source. And don't forget: our museum gives you access to the city's first morgue and autopsy room, both of which have been preserved in their original state!
